  • A touch of Linen Thread and pop of polka dots in the Real Red designer paper and textured background add an instant WOW! factor.

  • The white tree created with Perfect Pines Framelits Dies (one of my favorite things from the Holiday Catalog) and Real Red heart literally pop (with the help of Stampin’ Dimensionals) against the Real Red and Cucumber Crush layers.

  • Stampin’ Up! Red Envelope Paper is the perfect weight for creating my custom envelope using the Envelope Punch Board.  Takes about a minute and “hangs” together with extra strength using Fast Fuse Adhesive.  The paper is on the list of my favorite things from the holiday catalog.
